It is the white/purple Salvia leucantha! I've grown it and love it! It's an annual for me as it most likely is for you.

Hummingbirds are beautiful flying jewels in the garden!

It will likely be border-line hardy where you are, Arlene. If we have a mild-ish winter it will likely return for you. If we have a winter like last year, then it won't.

Wow! That was fast! Yes, I think the lady at the checkout told me it was an annual, but, I have had some other annual salvias over winter for me so, fingers are crossed!

Mine came back even after that bad winter. I had not given the plant any protection from the cold.
It is a very forgiving plant.
